Through prayer and reflection, Lord, show me what You want me to do today. Then guide me to follow Your will, rather than my own desires. Amen.
Jesus said to the crowd:
“No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel
or sets it under a bed;
rather, he places it on a lampstand
so that those who enter may see the light.
For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible,
and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.
Take care, then, how you hear.
To anyone who has, more will be given,
and from the one who has not,
even what he seems to have will be taken away.”
This week the Missionary Oblates in Zambia are praying for you.
One of the places you are being prayed for is at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish in the Diocese of Caxito. The parish also includes the Virgin of the Poor Pastoral Center. Since 2011 the Oblates have served the rural Christian community of Panguila. Seeing the situation of human, moral, intellectual, material and spiritual poverty of the area, the Oblates focus their pastoral action around an important sentence of the founder of the Oblates, St. Eugene De Mazenod: “We must lead people to act like human beings, first of all, and then like Christians, and, finally, we must help them to become saints.”

A través de la oración y la reflexión, Señor, muéstrame lo que quieres que haga hoy. Luego guíame para seguir Tu voluntad, en lugar de mis propios deseos. Amén.
Lc 8, 16-18
En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a la multitud: “Nadie enciende una vela y la tapa con alguna vasija o la esconde debajo de la cama, sino que la pone en un candelero, para que los que entren puedan ver la luz. Porque nada hay oculto que no llegue a descubrirse, nada secreto que no llegue a saberse o a hacerse público.
Fíjense, pues, si están entendiendo bien, porque al que tiene se le dará más; pero al que no tiene se le quitará aun aquello que cree tener”.
Take the next step to strengthen your prayer life
We all could use some healing in our life. And prayer is the best way for us to communicate our needs with God.
Healing Prayers is a wonderful prayer book created by the Missionary Oblates for all those who long for the healing power of the Lord. For these persons, this prayer book has been written in faith and hope that, united in prayer, we might all experience healing of body, mind and spirit in every aspect of our lives.
